OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — Let it be known that Burrel Gambel is never too old to do something amazing.
Burrel is a Chickasha resident and he is the oldest person ever to complete the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon 5K.
He is 100 years old and nearing his 101st birthday. He finished the race holding hands with his 92-year-old friend Irene Park.
Burrel is a half-marathon veteran, having done them for almost every year of the last decade.
He became a half-marathoner when he was 90 years young.
He and Irene stay spry with daily one-mile walks.
Congratulations, Burrel and Irene!
